Global food and beverage company PepsiCo joins the Ingleside Business Park in Ladson, SC in a concrete tilt-wall facility designed to facilitate their increased warehouse and distribution needs in the region.
This build-to-suit industrial project includes a warehouse space featuring 12 fully automated dock positions, a truck ramp with four drive-in doors, and more than 35 dedicated forklift charging spaces. In addition to a dedicated fleet maintenance area on the property to keep the distributor’s vehicles in top shape, the project team installed high-velocity, low-speed fans throughout the distribution facility to maintain the ideal climate for PepsiCo’s products.
Due to the scale and extensive storage capabilities of this distribution project, the team installed intersection signal lights to fluidly direct forklift traffic in and around the numerous racking aisles and mitigate potential incidents with other drivers.
Optimized technology space is critical for the efficient functionality of any warehouse and distribution facility. With a tight deadline to meet and supply chain challenges causing delays in the switch gear and electrical panels needed for the facility’s operations, the project team enacted creative scheduling solutions and facilitated consistent, open dialogue with PepsiCo and trade partners to keep the project moving forward.
In addition to supply chain and scheduling considerations, the project team deftly pivoted from the original technological elements laid out in the project scope to accommodate the advanced IT and data requirements needed for the facility’s technological and racking system operations.
Adjacent to the warehouse, a 12,000-SF office space provides conference rooms, training areas, open office space, restrooms, breakroom, and a driver settlement area for employees to enjoy. The truck court outside features 15 charging stations serving up to 30 truck parking spaces.
To prepare the property for any future expansion, the project team placed a 93,000-SF building pad south of the main building and created optional plans to expand the site’s existing pond for drainage.
